Three religious orders originally sponsored the school: the Fran- ciscans of Sacred Heart Province, the Servites of the Eastern U. S. Province and the Passionists of Holy Cross Province. The school was incorporated pursuant to the laws of the State of Illinois in November 1967. Classes began in the fall quarter of 1968, with a faculty of 24 and an enrollment of 108. In January 1972, Catholic Theological Union was accredited by the American Association of Theological Schools. The North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools granted accreditation in March 1972. Since its founding, other religious communities have designated Catholic Theological Union as their official theologate: the Augustinians (1968), the Norbertines (1968), the Cincinnati Province and Kansas City Province of the Society of the Precious Blood (1968), the Mis- sionaries of the Sacred Heart (1969), the Society of the Divine Word (1970), the Eastern Province of the Con- gregation of the Holy Ghost (1971), the Claretians (1972), the Viatorians (1972), the Xaverian Missionaries (1973), the Crosiers (1974), the Comboni Missionaries of the Heart of Jesus (1976), the Pontifical Institute for Foreign Missions (1976), the St. Nicholas Diocese in Chicago for Ukrainian Catholics (1978), the Priests of the Sacred Heart (1979), the Assumption Province of the Franciscans (1980), the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament (1980), the St. Paul of the Cross Province of the Passionists (1981), the Capuchins (1982), the St. John the Baptist Province of the Franciscans (1982), the Society of St. Columban (1984), the Redemptorist Fathers and Brothers (1984), the Central United States Province of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (1985), the Western Province of the Congregation of the Holy Ghost (1985), the Oratorians (1987), the Maryknoll Missionaries (1988), the St. John the Baptist Province of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate (1988), and the St. Bonaventure Province of the Franciscan Conventuals (1988). GENERAL INFORMATION HISTORY AND PURPOSE LOCATION CAMPUS LIBRARY CHICAGO RESOURCES FOR THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO LECTURESHIPS STAUROS, U,S,A. HISTORY AND PURPOSE Catholic Theological Union is unique among schools of theology and seminaries. It is not a coalition of in- dependent schools. Rather, the participating orders closed their individual theologates and merged their resources into one school, with one administration and facuUy. Control is vested in the Board of Trustees. The school has the advantage of unity of administration and breadth of tradition and support and has been accepted by its peers in the world of theological education. Catholic Theological Union is the largest Roman Catholic school of theology in the United States, serving 32 provinces and abbeys of religious men as an official theologate. It also serves other students, lay and reUgious, in the preparation for ministry. One out of every eight religious priesthood candidates in the United States is trained at Catholic Theological Union. A living sense of purpose guides a school more effec- tively than any written statement. From the very begin- ning, it was understood that Catholic Theological Union would be a school of ministry. Theology would be directed to practice. The by-laws concisely stated this objective: to train and teach aspirants to the Roman Catholic priesthood so that they may be fully qualified to meet the requirements of such priesthood. As a school grows, a periodic review of its purposes is necessary. In 1991, Catholic Theological Union reviewed its goals and adopted a new Identity and Mission Statement: Identity Catholic Theological Union is a graduate school of theology and ministry sponsored by Roman Catholic religious institutes and societies of apostolic life. In response to the renewal of the Second Vatican Coun- cil, the school's founders chose to unite their seminaries in order to educate more creatively for the religious priesthood and to locate the school near other graduate schools of theology and the University of Chicago in order that students and faculty may benefit from and con- tribute to theological scholarship and ministerial formation in an ur- ban, ecumenical and university setting. Reflecting the diverse cultures, nationalities and races of the women and men who make up the CTU community, the school sees the pursuit of justice, inclusivity and col- laboration as integral to its ethos. Mission The primary mission of Catholic Theological Union is the academic and pastoral formation of students preparing for the priesthood and for a variety of other ministries in the United States and around the world. The school also provides continuing theological education for clergy, religious and lay persons. CTU is committed to theological educa- tion and scholarship within a community of faith in interaction with a living Cathohc tradition and ecumenical, interfaith and cross-cultural perspectives and resources. Through its degree programs and other educa- tional and formational opportunities CTU strives to educate effective leaders for the church whose mission is to witness Christ's good news of justice, love and peace to people of all nations. The central focus of Catholic Theological Union is the priesthood candidate. In the spirit of the Program of Priestly Formation, the school has adapted its programs to the present needs of church and society. Today, such adaptation involves an additional commitment to educa- tion for the wide variety of ministries emerging in the church, for women and men, religious and lay, as well as continuing education for those already involved in ministry, both ordained and non-ordained. Half of Catholic Theological Union's current students are among those preparing for such ministries or are in programs of continuing education for their current ministries. LOCATION Catholic Theological Union is located in Hyde Park on Chicago's south side. This is a cosmopolitan, stably integrated community, with a strong sense of identity. Within walking distance are shopping centers, theaters, restaurants, churches, parks, the Lake Michigan beaches and the Museum of Science and Industry. Downtown Chicago is fifteen minutes away by car or rapid transit. More importantly. Catholic Theological Union is close to the Divinity School of the University of Chicago and to several schools of theology in the area: Chicago Theological Seminary, Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, Meadville/Lombard Theological School and McCormick Theological Seminary. CAMPUS Catholic Theological Union occupies three buildings on Cornell Avenue. Five floors of the ten-story building at 5401 South Cornell Avenue provide space for classrooms, administrative and faculty offices, library, dining and lounge facihties, meeting rooms and audio- visual laboratory. Additional faculty office and classroom facilities are located in the building at 5326 South Cornell. Living quarters for some of the religious communities of men occupy five floors of the building at 5401 South HISTORY AND PURPOSE LOCATION CAMPUS Cornell Avenue. Living quarters for other students are located in the 5326 and 5420 buildings. Both efficiency and one-bedroom apartments are available. THE LIBRARY The Catholic Theological Union Library contains 90,000 volumes, providing resources for study and research by students and faculty members. It currently receives over 540 periodicals. In addition to the general theological holdings, the library has special collections in mission studies, history of religions and homiletics. The Association of Chicago Theological Schools' libraries, one of the largest theological bibhographical resources in the Western hemisphere, consisting of more LIBRARY than 1,200,000 volumes in theology and allied fields, are available to students enrolled in CTU. A courier service circulates books and periodicals for inter-library loans. Membership in the Association of Chicago Theological Schools, the Chicago Library System, the Il- linois Library Computer System Organization and the On- line Catalog Library Cooperative allows library patrons access to other library resources in the city of Chicago, the state of Illinois, and the rest of the nation. CHICAGO RESOURCES FOR THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION From its earliest days, Chicago has been a major cosmopoHtan center, with its many neighborhoods representing a wide variety of racial and ethnic groups, as well as a broad spectrum of cultural and religious traditions. In recent years, Chicago has also become one of the largest centers of theological education in the world. Its 12 seminaries with over 4000 students and 400 faculty make Chicago an unequalled resource for the study of theology and ministry. Catholic Theological Union enjoys a variety of col- laborative relationships with the other theological institu- tions of the city, through two distinctive interlocking consortia. The school works closely with four other institutions in Hyde Park, who together form the Hyde Park Cluster of Theological Schools. The other institutions are the Chicago Theological Seminary (United Church of Christ), Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, Meadville/Lom- bard Theological School (Unitarian/Universalist Associa- tion) and McCormick Theological Seminary (Presbyterian Church, USA). The Hyde Park Cluster works to develop coordinated and joint programming as well as other academic services to students and faculty. The Association of Chicago Theological Schools represents another form of collaboration. Its membership includes the five Hyde Park schools plus Bethany Theo- logical Seminary (Church of the Brethren) and Northern Baptist Theological Seminary, both located in the western suburbs, and five northside schools, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary (United Methodist), North Park Theological Seminary (Evangelical Covenant), Saint Mary of the Lake University (Roman Catholic), Seabury- Western Theological Seminary (Episcopal) and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (Evangelical Free Church). The Association fosters student cross-registration, coor- dination of library access and acquisition, faculty discus- sion and communication among the schools. It offers to CHICAGO RESOURCES FOR THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION the 4000 students in its 12 schools more than 1000 courses annually and library collections in excess of 1.2 million volumes, with nearly 5000 currently received periodical subscriptions. Further information on the Association may be found in the current edition of its Announcements. The participating institutions in each of these groups maintain educational autonomy and grant their own degrees. Each school also preserves its confessional iden- tity and theological traditions. Catholic Theological Union's participation follows the guidelines set down in the Ecumenical Directory of the Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity and in the Program of Priestly Forma- tion of the National Conference of Cathohc Bishops. Students may enroll in courses in any of these 12 schools without additional tuition or registration charge upon approval of their academic advisors and the Registrar. They enjoy library privileges in these schools at no charge. CHICAGO RESOURCES FOR THEOLOGICAL EDUCATION UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO LECTURESHIPS THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO Catholic Theological Union is located near the cam- pus of the University of Chicago, one of the great research institutions in the world. Its Divinity School is renowned for historical research and the preparation of teaching scholars. A special plan of biregistration permits CTU students to register for courses in the University at a substantial reduction of tuition. By special arrangement, certain M.Div. students may pursue a coordinated sequence of study whereby they may receive the M.Div. degree from Catholic Theological Union and the Ph.D. degree thereafter from the Univer- sity of Chicago's Divinity School. Details on this arrange- ment may be found in the M.Div./Ph.D. section of the catalog. LECTURESHIPS In 1968 the Jewish Chautauqua Society established a resident lectureship in Judaism at Catholic Theological Union for the purpose of providing offerings in Jewish studies in the curriculum. Hayim Goren Perelmuter, Rabbi 10 Emeritus of Congregation K.A.M. Isaiah Israel and past President of the Chicago Board of Rabbis, has served as Chautauqua Professor of Jewish Studies at CathoHc Theological Union under this endowment since 1968. The Northern Province of the Society of the Divine Word established the Divine Word Scholar-in-Residence in 1976 to bring instructors from other countries to teach at Catholic Theological Union. These lecturers offer courses for one or more quarters during the academic year. Other participating communities at Catholic Theological Union have periodically supported visiting lectureships to enrich the offerings in the school's curriculum.

The SEC works closely with the Dean of Students and Community Services. FORMATION COUNCIL The directors of formation of all the participating communities at Catholic Theological Union and the Dean of Students compose the Formation Council. The Coun- cil serves as a forum through which the directors share insights and experiences regarding spiritual formation. In certain instances the Formation Council may agree upon common policies in matters which affect the religious well- being of the student body, and in particular of the students from the participating religious communities, and make recommendations to the administration. Formation directors engage in the academic life of the school by at- tending faculty meetings, serving on school committees and, in particular cases, by holding joint appointments as CTU faculty and community formation staff. 16 The Formation Council also places two representatives on the Catholic Theological Union Senate. GUIDANCE, COUNSELING AND WORSHIP In the matter of academic guidance, each student, upon being admitted to the school, is assigned an academic advisor. The participating communities of Catholic Theolog- ical Union generally provide resources in the area of counseling and spiritual direction for their student members. For independent students, referral for counsel- ing and spiritual direction is available through the office of the Dean of Students and Community Services. Each of the participating communities celebrates daily liturgies in which all students are welcome. Additionally, Catholic Theological Union, through its Liturgy Com- mittee, sponsors all-school liturgies several times per quarter. These celebrations are important features of the school's life as a faith community.

Consequent- ly, all its programs are open to all serious and qualified students, male and female, who wish to prepare themselves for ministries in this tradition. Pre-Theological Study Pre-theological studies have been the object of exten- sive research and consultation in recent years. Both the Program of Priestly Formation and the Association of Theological Schools give guidelines about the understand- ings and skills prerequisite to theological education. Catholic Theological Union concurs with these statements and has adapted its admission requirements and regula- tions to their spirit. GENERAL REGULATIONS ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 19 ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS General Admission Requirements The following are requisite for general admission to Catholic Theological Union: — A bachelor's degree or its equivalent from an ap- proved college or university. — A completed application form. The application form may be obtained from the Admissions Office. Applications from students of participating communities are due April 15. Applications from all other students are due six weeks prior to the quarter in which students plan to enter Catholic Theological Union. Late ap- plications will be accepted, but no guarantee can be given of admission processing in time to begin the following quarter. In such cases, students may be admitted conditionally at the discretion of the Admissions Committee. — Payment of the matriculation fee to the Admissions Office. — Submission of official copies of all college transcripts to the Admissions Office. — Letters of Recommendation. In applying for a degree or for studies leading to a certificate, three letters are required. In the case of priests and deacons or members of religious institutes which are not participating communities of Catholic Theological Union, one of these letters must be from an official represent- ative of their diocese or institute. Applicants from Catholic Theological Union's participating communities need not submit let- ters, since permission from a participating com- munity constitutes adequate recommendation. If the community withdraws its sponsorship or if the student leaves the community. Catholic Theological Union requires the presentation of three letters of reference and a new application requesting re-admission. In applying for continuing education or special stu- dent status, one letter is required. This letter must come from a person who can 20 wmmm testify to the applicant's ability to undertake graduate study in ministerial education. Again, applicants from Catholic Theological Union's participating communities need not sub- mit this letter. Catholic Theological Union reserves the right to re- quire personal interviews with admissions officials and formal evaluation of applicants. ACADEMIC REGULATIONS Student Classification Students are admitted to studies toward degree pro- grams after completion of admission requirements of the respective programs. They may apply for degree candidacy after completion of more than 25*^0 but less than 33% of study toward the respective degree. Specific re- quirements for degree candidacy in the various degree pro- grams are listed in the respective program manuals. Generally, persons already engaged in ministry who are seeking further professionalization and updating but are not choosing another degree program enroll in the continuing education program. Special student status is normally reserved to those who have not yet decided on a degree program or who are enrolling for a specific and closely defined objective such as courses for initial formation purposes or cross- cultural mission preparation. Renewal of special student status beyond one year is contingent upon the recommen- dation of instructors at CathoHc Theological Union and review by the Admission Committee. Students enrolling for at least nine hours per quarter are classified as full-time students. All others are part- time students. Registration Registration takes place in advance of the quarter on the dates announced in the academic calendar. Late registration is allowed on the dates so designated in the calen- dar. Registration after these dates cannot be guaranteed. ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 21 Changes in Registration Changes in registration are allowed through the first week of the quarter without academic or financial penalty. After the first week, refund policies for withdrawals apply. (See "REFUND POLICY," p. 12) Class Schedule and Course Load Catholic Theological Union operates on the quarter system, with three eleven-week quarters per year. Most courses are offered for 3 quarter credit hours, and meet 150 minutes per week for 10 weeks, with the eleventh week for study and examinations. Classes are scheduled Mon- day through Thursday during the day. Evening courses and some weekend intensives are also offered. The normal course load is 4 courses (12 credit hours) per quarter. With the permission of their academic ad- visor, students may register for an additional course. Course offerings are arranged so that one may pur- sue an M .T. S . or M . A . degree in most areas of concen- tration completely by means of evening and weekend courses. The sequence of these courses is scheduled on a two-year cycle. ACADEMIC REGULATIONS Grading and Standards of Progress Grades are given at the end of each quarter and published by the Registrar. The student's academic ad- visor keeps a progressive checklist of advancement toward completion of hour and area requirements. Catholic Theological Union uses the letter grade system and also the pass-fail system for some courses. Grades are given and computed according to the follow- ing schedule: A Excellent four quality points B Good three quality points C Fair two quality points D Poor one quality point F Failure no quality points P : Pass WP = Withdrew passing WF = Withdrew failing I Incomplete PI Permanent Incomj 3lete 22 Students must have a minimum 3.0 cumulative quali- ty point average in a degree program in order to graduate. Students falling below this cumulative average for two consecutive quarters are subject to probation. Students failing to show improvement are subject to dismissal unless there are extenuating circumstances. Catholic Theological Union reserves the right to dismiss students whose academic progress or whose adjustment to the school is unsatisfactory. Students dismissed for poor scholarship cannot be readmitted to the degree program. Withdrawals Students may withdraw from any course up to the end of the seventh week of the quarter if permission of their advisor is obtained. They must follow the procedures outUned by the Registrar's Office. The grade "WP" or "WF" will be entered on their transcript for courses from which they have withdrawn. Refund policies outlined by the Business Office will be applied (see p. 12). Incompletes Students who fail to finish work by a quarter's end may petition an instructor for an extension of time to complete coursework up to the end of the next quarter. If work is not completed by that time, the instructor will award either an "F" or a "PI" for the course. In those instances, no credit will be given for the course. The course may be repeated but the student must register and pay tuition again according to the normal procedures of the school. Petitions for extensions and copies of the policy and procedures on Incompletes are available in the Registrar's Office. Failures No credit is given for a course in which a student receives an "¥." If the course if required, it must be suc- cessfully completed before the student takes courses for which it is a prerequisite or before graduation. Transfer of Credit Previously earned graduate credit in theology may be transferred to Catholic Theological Union. Ordinarily, no more than 9 hours may be transferred into M.A. and M.T. S. programs; no more than 36 quarter credits may be transferred into the M . Div. program. No credits from ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 23 ACADEMIC REGULATIONS courses graded below "B" can be transferred. Decisions about credit transfers are made by the degree program directors. Credits will be recognized only after the stu- dent has successfully completed one year of academic work at Catholic Theological Union. Advanced Standing Students entering M . Div. and M .T. S . programs may petition to receive advanced standing for previous work done in foundational areas. If the petition is granted, hours in those foundational areas then become elective. Petitions for advanced standing are to be directed to the program director who approves and forwards them to the Office of the Academic Dean. Credit by Examination Credit by examination may be sought in many foun- dational areas and in select advanced areas in the M . Div. and M.T. S. programs. Procedures for seeking credit by examination are outlined in the M.T.S. and M.Div. Manuals. Credit by Cross-Registration Students enrolled at Catholic Theological Union en- joy the possibihty of enrolling in a number of other Chicago theological schools. They may enroll (at no ad- ditional tuition charge) at any of the other eleven member schools of the Association of Chicago Theological Schools (Bethany Theological Seminary, Chicago Theological Seminary, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, Lutheran School of Theology, McCormick Theological Seminary, Meadville/ Lombard Theological School, North Park Theological Seminary, Northern Bap- tist Theological Seminary, St. Mary of the Lake Univer- sity, Seabury-Western Theological Seminary, and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School). Catholic Theological Union enjoys a relationship whereby its students may also enroll in courses at the University of Chicago with significant reduction in tui- tion. Details may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. 24 Credit for courses taken in the schools mentioned above may be appUed toward Catholic Theological Union degree requirements. Up to one-third of a student's work may be done in these schools, and by special arrangement this may be increased to one-half. ACADEMIC REGULATIONS 25 ii ACADEMIC PROGRAMS MASTER OF DIVINITY (M.DIV.) MASTER OF ARTS IN THEOLOGY (M.A.) MASTER OF THEOLOGICAL STUDIES (M.T.S.) M.DIV./Ph.D. SEQUENCE CONCENTRATIONS CONTINUING EDUCATION SPECIAL AREAS OF MINISTRY OFF -CAMPUS STUDY OPPORTUNITIES Academic Programs The Catholic Theological Union Curriculum Catholic Theological Union is a graduate school of theology and ministry. Program options in its curriculum include the following: Master of Divinity, Master of Arts in Theology, Master of Theological Studies, Certificate in Biblical Spirituality, Certificate in Liturgical Studies and Certificate in Pastoral Studies. The school's central mission is the academic and pastoral formation of students preparing for the priesthood and for a variety of other ministries in the United States and around the world. In keeping with that mission, the fundamental goal of the curriculum is to pro- vide both theological learning and professional develop- ment in ministry and to invite students into an educational process which promotes dialogue and integration between theology and the practice of ministry. The educational process also aims to be responsive to the larger cultural and religious pluralism of the world reflected in the school's international student body, in the ecumenical association of theological schools and the ur- ban context within which the school carries on its study of theology and ministry. Accordingly, in its curriculum and common Hfe, the school seeks to foster cross-cultural awareness and sensitivity, ecumenical and inter-faith dialogue and concern for peace, justice and the equality of all people. More specific curricular objectives are given with each of the degree programs. MASTER OF DIVINITY (M . DIV. ) Aim of the Program Catholic Theological Union's Master of Divinity degree is a graduate professional program. The program is open both to candidates for the ordained ministry and to lay and religious women and men who will not be or- dained. It seeks to prepare candidates for pastoral leader- ship in a pluralistic world in a variety of ministerial contexts. 26 The M . Div. program combines theological education, guided ministerial experience, and structures for in- tegrative reflection. As a first professional degree, the M.Div. aims to provide a generahst preparation for ministry, while allowing for some concentration within its broad framework. The M.Div. degree attests that its bearer has attained an initial readiness to engage in full-time pastoral ministry in the Roman Catholic Church. In this context, "initial readiness" means that the graduate has appropriated the Catholic tradition, possesses the ability to communicate it effectively and to engage in pastoral practice faithful to it, and is aware of the need for ongoing education and formation in ministry. Admission Requirements In addition to the general admission requirements outlined above, the following are normally prerequisite for admission to the M.Div. program: — fifteen semester hours of philosophy (These will provide adequate exposure to the major historical periods of philosophical thought. Other recom- mended areas are philosophical anthropology, epistemology, and metaphysics.) — three semester hours in sociology — six semester hours in psychology (Experimental psychology and personality theory are recom- mended.) Students intending to come to Catholic Theological Union are advised to consider other areas important for ministry: e.g., the classical roots of their own cultures and traditions and languages such as Latin and Greek. Enter- ing students will also possess facility in reading, writing and speaking English. Program Options and Requirements The program is divided into foundational and advanced u areas. Requirements on the foundational level are com- mon for all M . Div. candidates and include courses, col- loquia and, normally, supervised ministry experience, i^ rxry totaling 36 quarter hours. _^i..„— L_»! 27 M.DIV. Requirements on the advanced level include courses, supervised ministry experience with a concomitant col- loquium and the integrating seminar. In most instances, the course requirements are by area rather than by specific course. On the advanced level, candidates may choose between two tracks for the basic shape of their program. The first track is particularly suited to the needs of lay and religious women and men who will not be ordained. This track re- quires a total of 72 quarter hours beyond the 36 quarter hours required on the foundational level. The second track seeks to implement faithfully the guidelines of the 1981 Program of Priestly Formation and is designed for priesthood candidates. This track requires a total of 105 quarter hours beyond the 36 quarter hours required on the foundational level. The M . Div. program of individual students in either of these tracks can also be tailored or expanded to fulfill the requirements of a sponsoring agen- cy or religious community and the needs of their future ministry. Foundational Requirements The foundational requirements are distributed as follows: Courses/ areas Hrs Old Testament Introduction 3 New Testament Introduction 3 Church History Survey 6 Introduction to Christian Ethics 3 Introduction to Social Ethics 3 Introduction to Theology 3 Introduction to Pastoral Care and Counseling 3 Introduction to Liturgy 3 Supervised Ministry Ministry Practicum I 9 Colloquia Six colloquia sessions (e.g., in cross-cultural ministry, ministry and spirituality, etc.) 28 Advanced Requirements The advanced requirements for the two tracks are distributed as follows.

Language Requirement There is no foreign language requirement for the M.Div. degree as such. However, departments may recommend or require specific foreign language com- petencies for admission to some courses and concen- trations. Advisement and Administration Students work with an academic advisor to determine the particular shape and requirements of their M.Div. program. Students are eligible to apply for M . Div. degree candidacy upon completion of 24 credit hours at Catholic Theological Union. Full regulations and procedures regarding the M.Div. degree are contained in the M . Div. Manual. The M . Div. program is administered by Robert Moosb rugger, O.M.I., Director, to whom inquiries should be addressed. M.DIV. 31 COOPERATIVE MASTER OF DIVINITY COOPERATIVE MASTER OF DIVINITY Catholic Theological Union has participated in the development of a cooperative Master of Divinity degree program between the Ecumenical Theological Center in Detroit and a cluster of members of the Association of Chicago Theological Schools, including, in addition to CTU, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, McCor- mick Theological Seminary and Seabury-Western Theological Seminary. Courses are offered in Detroit at the Ecumenical Theological Center by faculty of the four cooperating schools and the Center. Students register for courses at the Center and apply through the Admissions Office of the cooperating school of their choice to become a Master of Divinity degree candidate. Approximately two-thirds of the curriculum can be accomplished in Detroit and the rest according to the policies of CTU or one of the other three admitting schools. Students matriculating at CTU through the Ecumenical Theological Center in Detroit must meet CTU admission requirements. Granting of the CTU Master of Divinity degree is contingent upon the student's fulfilling all relevant CTU degree requirements. Further information concerning this cooperative pro- gram can be obtained from the M. Div. Director at CTU who is a member of the Steering Committee administer- ing the program or by contacting the Ecumenical Theological Center, 8425 West McNichols Road, Detroit, Michigan 48221-2599 (313/342-4600). 32 MASTER OF ARTS IN THEOLOGY (M.A.) Aim of the Program The purpose of Catholic Theological Union's program for the Master of Arts in Theology is multidimensional. The program is designed, within the resources of Catholic Theological Union, the Association of Chicago Theological Schools and the University of Chicago, to provide the theological background for those who wish to prepare for entrance into a doctoral program in theology, to teach religion at a secondary or college level or to develop a basic competence in the area of theological studies though their principal specialization lies elsewhere. The M.A. program is marked by flexibility, allowing for a wide variety of individually tailored programs. When they apply for admission to the program, normally by the middle of the quarter preceding admission, the candidates choose the objective(s) which best meet their needs. Before registering for M . A . course work candidates meet with their M.A. advisor and the M . A . Director to work out the details of a program designed to help achieve the ob- jective(s) chosen. The M.A. advisor will help students MASTER OF ARTS IN THEOLOGY 33 M.A 34 evaluate their progress and decide on any modification which might be advisable. The M.A. in theology is not routinely granted en route to the M.Div. but may be pursued concurrently with the M.Div. It is open to those who wish to gain theological background for work other than the priestly ministry. Once the prerequisites have been met, the M . A . pro- gram will usually take two years (one year of course work plus the time needed for the thesis and the comprehen- sive examinations). It must be completed within seven years. Admission Requirements In addition to the general admission requirements, candidates for the M . A . in theology must have completed 18 semester hours or 27 quarter hours of university or seminary level theology. This latter requirement can be fulfilled by study in foundational areas at CTU or by an undergraduate major in theology or religious studies from an accredited college, university or seminary, provided that the Academic Dean, in consultation with the M . A. Direc- tor and appropriate faculty members, judges this to be equivalent. To enter advanced level courses in the Depart- ment of Biblical Literature and Languages the M.A. candidates must have taken B 300 and B 305 or equivalent. Other prerequisites for specific areas of specialization may be required by the Dean, in consultation with the M.A. Director and appropriate faculty members. Program Requirements The M.A. program requirements consist of courses, language certification, comprehensive examinations and thesis. Course Requirements Thirty-six quarter hours of course work are required. The candidate must maintain a "B" (3.0) average. There will be automatic dismissal from the program for any grade below a "C" or for more than two "C's." The course work shall be divided as follows: 1. Eight advanced level courses in the student's area of specialization (e.g., scripture, systematic theo logy, ethics, etc.) 24 hours im 2. Two advanced level courses in each of two other theological disciplines 12 hours Up to one-third of the courses may be taken in other approved schools. By special arrangement with the M. A. board, this may be increased to one-half. Comprehensive Examinations Part of the requirements for the M.A. in theology is a two-part comprehensive examination in which the can- didates are to demonstrate their grasp of theological methodologies and the content of the disciphnes includ- ed within the scope of their program. The content and approach for which the student will be responsible in the comprehensives is determined by the student and the board of examiners within the general prescriptions of the M.A. program. A student may take the comprehensive examination two times; upon receipt of a petition from the student, the comprehensive board may allow a third attempt. Thesis As the final requirement for the M . A . in theology, candidates must demonstrate the ability to do competent work in their field by writing a thesis characterized by research and independent thought. The thesis shall be 75 to 125 pages in length and conform to one of the manuals of style approved by Catholic Theological Union. Language Requirements A reading knowledge of one modern foreign language is required for all candidates for the M.A. degree. The choice will be limited ordinarily to French or German. In addition, those specializing in historical and doctrinal studies will be required normally to demonstrate a reading knowledge of Latin, and those specializing in scripture will be required to demonstrate a reading knowledge of Greek and Hebrew. Language competence shall be demonstrated as early as possible within the program. M.A. 35 Final Recommendation The M.A. Director will determine the candidate's cumulative grade, based on course work (one-halO, com- prehensive examination (one-quarter) and thesis (one- quarter). An appropriate recommendation will then be made to the Dean and Faculty for the conferring of the degree of Master of Arts in Theology. Administration and Further Regulations The M.A. program is administered by Stephen Bevans, S.V.D., Director. Inquiries concerning the pro- gram should be directed to his office. Further regulations for the M.A. program are contained in the M.A. Manual. M.A MASTER OF THEOLOGICAL STUDIES MASTER OF THEOLOGICAL STUDIES (M.T.S.) Aim of the Program The Master of Theological Studies (M .T. S . ) aims to pro- vide the students with a general theological understanding 36 as a context within which they will also develop selected pastoral skills and competencies. Building upon previous ministerial experience, the M.T. S. provides education in the foundational areas of theological disciplines, a focus for developing selected pastoral skills and an integration of these skills within the framework of a general theological understanding. The M.T.S. is intended for persons who have had some ministerial experience and who wish to prepare for new ministries or to enhance their effectiveness in their current ministry. Concretely the M .T. S . is envisioned for sisters, brothers, deacons, lay persons or priests who wish an additional theological focus. Although the M.T.S. draws upon the same resources as do the M.A. and M.Div. degrees and shares aspects of their objectives and design, it is nonetheless distinct in its focus and relationship to these programs. As a degree which provides not only general theological understanding but also specific ministerial skills and competencies, the M.T.S. is basically dif- ferent in orientation from the research M.A. degree and so cannot be pursued concurrently with the M.A. degree. The M.T.S. represents a more limited range of pastoral skills for ministry than does the generalist M . Div. degree. For that reason, it does not quahfy the candidate for ordination to priesthood in the Roman Catholic Church. Work done in the M .T. S. program, however, can be applied toward the M.Div. degree, although the two programs cannot be pursued concurrently. Admission Requirements In addition to the general admission requirements, at least three years of experience involving the communica- tion of religious values to others are required. Some background in theology, philosophy, psychology, sociology and religious studies is recommended. The ade- quacy of this background will be determined according M T S to the student's specific program. , * 37 Program Requirements The equivalent of two full-time academic years (72 quarter credit hours) is required for the M.T.S. degree. Advanced standing and transfer of credit may be granted for previous theological study, to be applied to the foun- dational areas of the M.T.S. Decisions on advanced standing and transfer of credit are based upon transcript evaluation and student interview. Candidates must main- tain a 3.0 cumulative grade average. The program must be completed within seven years. - Specific hour requirements fall into three areas: foun- dational, theological/ pastoral, and integrative areas. Foundational Areas: 21 hours The foundational areas are meant to provide some grounding in the major theological disciplines. They consist of 21 hours. Equivalency may be granted for this work if similar work has been done on an advanced level (i.e., upper level college or at another theological school). Work in the foundational areas must be com- pleted during the first year of residency. The founda- tional areas include: Introduction to the Old Testament 3 Introduction to the New Testament 3 History of Early Christianity 3 Introduction to Theology 3 Introduction to Christian Ethics 3 Introduction to Social Ethics 3 Sacraments: Theology and Celebration 3 Theological! Pastoral Areas: 42 hours The theological/ pastoral areas provide work in selected areas of pastoral skills within the context of further theological understanding. Forty-two hours are required in this area, to be distributed in the following manner: Systematic Theology (God, Christ, Church, Eucharist, Eschatology) ' 6 Scripture 6 - ^ ^ g Area of Concentration 18 ^ ^^ Electives ' 12 38 Integrative Areas: 9 hours Nine hours are required in the integrative area. Three of these hours are to be completed in the first year of residency, ordinarily through the M .T. S . Col- loquium. These hours are meant to aid the candidates in reflecting upon their previous ministerial experience. Three hours are to be done in the second year, to serve as a focus for a fuller integration of pastoral skills, theological reflection and ministerial experience. The final three hours are granted for the M.T.S. project which is oriented to the candidate's projected area of pastoral ministry and is completed under the supervision of faculty in the appropriate area. The pro- ject may be done in conjunction with the second in- tegrating course. Since the M.T.S. program allows for a great deal of individualization, programs for M.T.S. students will be developed in consultation with the student and ap- propriate faculty in the projected area of pastoral skill. Language Requirement There are no language requirements as such for the M .T. S. , although language competencies may be required for entry into certain courses. Administration The M .T. S. Program is directed and administered by Jeanette M. Lucinio, S.P. , Director. Further regulations for the M .T. S. program are found in the M .T. S. Manual. THE M.DIV./ PH.D. SEQUENCE By a special arrangement with the University of Chicago, select M.Div. students from Catholic Theological Union may pursue a coordinated sequence of programs leading to the M.Div. degree at Catholic Theological Union and the Ph. D. degree at the Univer- sity of Chicago Divinity School. M.T.S Upon receiving written approval of the Academic ^ DIV. /PH.D. Dean of Catholic Theological Union, the student may enter this sequence. While pursuing the regular course of SEQUENCE 39 M.DIV./PH.D SEQUENCE 40 study in the M.Div. program, the student prepares for the three Certifying Examinations and writes an essay on religious studies in the modern world. These requirements constitute the preliminary phase of doctoral study at the University. The Certifying Examinations cover the follow- ing areas: Sacred Scriptures of Judaism, Christianity and Islam; Western Religious Traditions to 1500; and Religion in the West, 1500-1900. Each year the Divinity School faculty selects a par- ticular topic for the essay in religious studies. The school also offers a two course sequence annually in preparation for this essay. Students are encouraged, but not required, to take this sequence. Application for the Ph.D. program includes com- pletion of at least two quarters of bi-registration at the University, enrolling in at least two 400-level courses at the University of Chicago Divinity School; successful completion of the three Certifying Examinations; suc- cessful completion of the essay and successful comple- tion of a French or German foreign language examina- tion administered by the University of Chicago. M.Div. students may apply for the Ph.D. program when they have completed the requirements above and have completed two years of the M.Div. program. Ap- plication to the Ph.D. program does not constitute ad- mission. Applications from this sequence will be con- sidered along with other applications to the Ph.D. pro- gram in the Divinity School. If accepted, the student matriculates into the Ph . D. program within one year and takes at least two courses in that program thereafter until admitted to Ph . D. candidacy. If rejected, the student may apply for an M.A. in the University, if the regular curricular and financial obligations are met. Students must complete the M . Div. before the Ph . D. can be awarded. The student may petition to have a facul- ty member from Catholic Theological Union serve as an additional examiner in the oral portion of the Qualifying Examinations and also serve as a member of the disser- tation reading committee. Students may apply credit received in University courses to the M.Div. degree in the usual arrangements with neighboring institutions. Successful completion of the Certifying Examinations and essay may be substituted for the Pastoral Mission Statement in the M.Div. Resume. Choice of elective courses and the field of doc- toral study may make some adjustment in M . Div. course distribution requirements plausible. In such cases, the stu- dent may petition the M.Div. Director for such ad- justments. These can be made by the M . Div. Director after consultation with the Academic Dean and appropriate departments. Further details on this sequence may be obtained from the Dean's Office. More information on Ph . D. programs at the University of Chicago Divinity School may be found in the current issue of its Announcements. PROGRAMS WITH WORLD MISSION CONCENTRATION The World Mission Program at Catholic Theological Union has been developed to allow students to choose a mission focus in any of the various degree programs of- fered by the school, as well as to meet the needs of furloughed and returned missionaries who come to the school for one or more terms of continuing education. It also challenges all theological education at Catholic Theological Union with the reality of cultural and religious pluralism and the awareness of an existing global church. The world mission of the church has entered a new era. The church today must seek to be faithful to the mis- sion of Christ in the midst of vast social and economic changes among the peoples of the world who struggle to remain faithful to their own cultural and religious heritage. The mission of the church needs apostles who are per- sons of dialogue — who are able to live maturely between different cultural worlds; who seek not only to give but to receive, not only to lead but to assist; who call to con- version, but are also ready to undergo conversion; who, in inviting all peoples to the community of those who pro- fess Jesu§ as their Savior, want to respect other churches M.DIV./PH.D. SEQUENCE WORLD MISSION CONCENTRATION 41 and other religions in their own proper development. With such apostles the church will become truly ecumenical and will become a sign and instrument of reconciliation and peace in Christ Jesus. It is with this awareness that Catholic Theological Union has shaped its World Mission Program. It has organized biblical, historical, systematic, and ethical courses with mission as their focus and/or content. It has created a specialized intensive course to help people prepare for cross-cultural ministry and a Mission /Ministry Integration Seminar to aid returned missionaries to pro- cess both their experience abroad and their re-entry. It has sought out pastoral placements most suitable for reflection on the church's mission. WORLD MISSION CONCENTRATION The World Mission Program is supervised and developed by the interdepartmental World Mission Forum. In this work forum members are aided by the Department of Cross-Cultural Ministries and by the Mission Advisory Council, representing the interests of the school's constituencies. All degree programs provide for a concentration in mission. The requirements for each are as follows: 42 Master of Divinity with World Mission Concentration The M.Div. with world mission concentration re- quires that one-third of the courses taken be from among those designated as mission courses. Mission courses are grouped in three categories: a) ministry courses, which provide experience and reflection upon that experience in mission; b) methodology courses, which deal with methods specific to the practice of mission; and c) missio- logy and theology courses, which provide the theoretical elaboration of fundamental concepts, themes and issues in mission. A Hst of mission courses by category is published annually. For the M.Div. with world mission concentration in Track I, there is to be a minimum of 36 hours in mission, on either the foundational or upper levels, to be distributed as follows: — 9 in ministry courses; — 9 in methodology courses; — 9 in missiology and theology courses; — 9 in mission electives (any category). For the M.Div. with world mission concentration in Track II, there is to be a minimum of 48 hours in mission, on either the foundational or upper levels, to be distributed as follows: — 12 in ministry courses; — 12 in methodology courses; — 12 in missiology and theology courses; — 12 in mission electives (any category). Master of Arts in Theology Requirements are the same as those listed for the M . A . degree. The eight advanced level courses taken as the major area are in mission courses. Master of Theological Studies Requirements are the same as those listed for the M.T. S. degree. The area of concentration is world mission. WORLD MISSION CONCENTRATION 43 Catholic Theological Union carries out its World Mis- sion Program in cooperation with the Association of Chicago Theological Schools. This guarantees a broad theological and ecumenical environment. Together the schools participate in planning and sponsoring various workshops and meetings on current mission and inter- national issues and the annual World Mission Institute held each April. For further information, contact the Director of the World Mission Program, John Kaserow, M.M. PROGRAMS WITH BIBLE CONCENTRATION The Bible is not just a collection of ancient writings but a major component in the contemporary formation of faith, a part of the living process of communication and interpretation of divine revelation. For this reason, students pursuing the Master of Divinity degree or other degrees are able to specialize in Bible with a view to developing a biblical approach in spirituality and ministry. Master of Divinity with Bible Concentration WORLD MISSION CONCENTRATION BIBLE CONCENTRATION General biblical requirements are the same as those listed for Tracks I and II of the M.Div. degree. In addi- tion, for concentration in the biblical field: — with advisement from the department, at least three general electives (9 hours) are to be taken in the biblical field, preferably on the 500 level; — two other supporting courses (6 hours) from the general M.Div. curriculum are to be taken with projects in the biblical dimensions of the area of study; — participation in Spring or Fall Israel Study Pro- gram is normally required as an integral part of the concentration (12 hours, applicable to M . Div. bible requirements); — through appropriate advisement, the Ministry Practicum II (9 hours) will be so structured that 44 the Bible can be used in an explicit way, e.g. in preaching or teaching ministries; students in Track I who do not do the Ministry Practicum II will take one more general elective (3 hours) in Bible, preferably an interdisciplinary course (e.g., Bible and Preaching); with advisement from the department, students are strongly urged to take one course in another ACTS school and to include among their biblical courses: one in a biblical language and one in Rabbinic Judaism. Certificate in Biblical Spirituality The Biblical Spirituality Program is a one-year cer- tificate program concentrating upon the Bible, in which class lectures, seminar discussion, study and prayer center upon the Bible as the common basis of Chris- tian living and Christian mission. During the fall quarter the Bible will be explored from the vantage point of the land of Israel where the participants will join Catholic Theological Union's Israel Study Pro- gram. This is followed by a re-entry seminar/ retreat in Chicago. The winter and spring quarters at Catholic Theological Union enable students not only to choose from extensive offerings in the Bible department but also to draw upon biblically-related courses in other departments. The program blends academic, Hturgical and recreational facets. With 36 credit hours (12 courses) a Certificate in Biblical SpirituaHty is awarded. Students may extend their study at Catholic Theological Union for an additional year to earn the degree of Master of Theological Studies. Further information is available from Marianne Race, C . S . J . , Director of the Biblical Spirituality Program. i Other Programs BIBLE The Master of Arts in Theology, the Master of rONrFNTR ATIOM Theological Studies and the Certificate in Pastoral ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ 45 Studies may also be taken with concentration in Bible. For details, see explanations under these programs. See also Israel Study Program, described on pp. 56-58. BIBLE CONCENTRATION WORD AND WORSHIP CONCENTRATION PROGRAMS WITH WORD AND WORSHIP CONCENTRATION The Department of Word and Worship offers a con- centration in preaching and pastoral liturgy within the M . Div. , M .T. S. and Certificate programs. This concen- tration seeks to combine a theological understanding of preaching and liturgy with skills both in exercising these ministries and in preparing others for them. It enables the student to integrate the study and practice of liturgy and preaching within a larger context of theology and pastoral care. Individual students work with the department chairperson to plan the specific content of their program in keeping with their background and future ministerial goals. In addition to Catholic Theological Union's course offerings, students working in Word and Worship pro- grams have access to a wide variety of course offerings in preaching and liturgy in neighboring schools. The Chicago area also provides many related resources and field sites for developing skills in Word and Worship. The program options and the Word and Worship requirements are as follows: 46 "The temple would ulti- mately be planted in the midst of the brawling city..." iSml BBMRisSBSilli '! ^ t mm »«■• waft***;*!

President Inaugural Address 25 Sept. 1988 Master of Divinity with Word and Worship Concentration General Word and Worship requirements are the same as those Hsted for Tracks I and II of the M.Div. degree. The M.Div. with Word and Worship concentration in Track I has the following added requirements and specifications: — 12 hours from the general electives are to be taken in Word courses and Worship courses with advise- ment of the department chairperson; — 3 additional hours from the general electives are to be taken in Lay Leadership of Prayer: — if Ministry Practicum II is required of the student (cf. above, p. 29), the 9 hours in Ministry Prac- ticum II are to be taken with placement in Word and Worship; or if Ministry Practicum II is not required of the stu- dent, 3 hours from the general electives are to be taken in supervised field ministry in Word and Worship; — in 2 other supporting courses (6 hours) students are to relate their course work to Word and Worship. The M.Div. with Word and Worship concentration in Track II has the following added requirements and specifications: — 9 hours from the general electives are to be taken in Word courses and Worship courses with advise- ment of the department chairperson; — the 9 hours in Ministry Practicum II are to be taken with placement in Word and Worship; — in 2 other supporting courses (6 hours) students are to relate their course work to Word and Worship. Concentrations are planned, under department advise- ment, to include both theory and pastoral practice of liturgy and preaching, in light of the student's background and projected ministry. WORD AND WORSHIP CONCENTRATION 47 WORD AND WORSHIP CONCENTRATION PASTORAL THEOLOGY CONCENTRATION Master of Theological Studies Requirements are the same as those Hsted above for the M.T.S. program. The 18 hours in the area of con- centration are selected from course offerings in Word and Worship with advisement of the department chairperson. Certificate in Liturgical Studies A Word and Worship concentration can be developed as a certificate program. The certificate requires 12 courses in theology, 8 of which must be completed in some com- bination of Word and Worship courses. The individual program for each certificate student is developed under advisement with the department chairperson. Master of Arts in Theology Catholic Theological Union also offers a Master of Arts in Theology degree in which a student can concen- trate in liturgy. Requirements are the same as those listed for the M. A. program. Eight upper division courses must be taken in the area of Word and Worship under the direc- tion of an advisor named by the M . A . Director in con- sultation with the department chairperson. Course offerings in Word and Worship are listed together in the section on course offerings. Additional electives include related courses in Scripture, Ethics, Mis- sion, Pastoral Care and other disciplines. Further details on Word and Worship programs may be obtained from the Office of the Dean or from the chairperson of the Word and Worship Department. PROGRAMS WITH PASTORAL THEOLOGY CONCENTRATION Master of Divinity with Pastoral Theology Concentration The Master of Divinity with a concentration in pastoral theology is designed to provide students with the opportunity to coordinate their studies in ways that will enhance preparation for the general practice of ministry in a variety of settings. It is rooted in a recognition that all the disciplines of ministry are important in develop- ing a coherent and integrated approach to pastoral work. The concentration employs an interdisciplinary design which enables students to pursue a chosen focus from a variety of perspectives. 48 Individual students work with an advisor from the department of Spirituahty and Pastoral Ministry to plan the specific content of their program in keeping with their background and future ministerial goals. In addition to Catholic Theological Union's course offerings, students working in pastoral theology have access to a wide varie- ty of course offerings in pastoral care, spirituality, social justice ministry and pastoral theology in neighboring schools. The Chicago area also provides a wide range of opportunities for developing the knowledge and skills needed for an integrated approach to pastoral work. General requirements for the concentration in pastoral theology are the same as those listed for the M . Div. pro- gram. Concentration in pastoral theology is achieved by these further specifications of the regular M.Div. requirements: — a seminar in pastoral theology, providing the organizing framework for the concentration; — two other advanced courses from the disciplines of ministry, providing an opportunity for the stu- dent to develop an interdisciplinary perspective on ministry; — a focus for study around one or two themes rele- vant for the practice of ministry chosen by the stu- dent with department approval (In five of the courses which the student takes as a regular part of her or his degree work, the student will focus on the chosen theme or themes in the written work for the course. Courses from at least three different departments should be represented among these five courses. The chosen theme or themes will also provide the focal point for the integrating seminar in the final year.); — Ministry Practicum II taken in a parochial setting or one which maximizes the awareness of the im- portance of a coordinated approach to ministry (When Ministry Practicum II is not taken, an alter- nate integrative ministry experience, determined in consultation with the advisor, will be required.). Master of Theological Studies PASTORAL The Master of Theological Studies may be taken with THEOLOGY a concentration in pastoral care, pastoral ministry, 49 pastoral theology or spirituality. The requirements are the same as those listed for the M.T. S. program. The 18 hours in the area of concentration are selected in consulta- tion with an advisor from the department.
